Is there any way to speed up mmf drying faster? I am making a baseball mit, and I think I waited to long to make it. Is there enything I can go to make it dry faster? I painted it lightly.
You could put it in front of a fan, or put it in the oven with just the light on or if you have a dehydrator use that.
ooh the oven light sounds like a winner, thanks
Just put something over the oven controls...a magnet or post-it note or something...so you remember that you've got something in there and don't end up turning on the oven.
I once stored an edimal image of my grandaughter in the oven and forgot.........yikes what a mess, it was covered with plastic , turned on oven........sheesh
... and DON'T be tempted to warm up the oven by preheating it "just a little" to help speed things up! (Ask me how I know?!)
LOL.....ouch that would totally suck....sounds like me
I've also put things like this under a desk lamp.
I was astonished by how much heat that little oven light puts out. I was skeptical the first time I read that suggestion, but it really works.
DO put a post-it note or something on the controls so you don't forget and turn on the oven. I just saw that on an episode of Amazing Wedding Cakes when the woman in Chicago forgot and turned on the oven. Even the super-pros makes those mistakes!
My ex-husband made me a dehydrator out of a large square container. He cut a hole large enough for a fan he removed from a computer tower and inserted this into the container *backwards* so that it would remove moisture. I had a ton of baby bootie mints that I needed to dry. It worked like a charm!
I have a "lighted" curio cabinet that I use to store my figures and aid in drying time, it works great.
I am no longer allowed to store things in my oven...........don't ask
